Easy and Healthy Tofu Chocolate Pudding

Easy and Healthy Tofu Chocolate Pudding

There's no need to press the excess water out of tofu in this recipe. It's a simple (but absolutely delicious) one-bowl pudding!

Ingredients: 3 pudding cups

Silken tofu
150 g
Soy milk (or milk)
200 ml
Cocoa powder
30 g (5 tablespoons)
50 g (5~6 tablespoons)
*If using pal sweet (aspartame sweetener)
5~6 teaspoons
Gelatin powder
5 g
Water to soak the gelatin in
2 tablespoons


1. Let the gelatin soak in about 2 tablespoons of water.
2. Place your tofu in a bowl, and lightly mash with a whisk.
3. Add in the cocoa and sugar into your bowl from Step 2 and whisk until it's smooth.
4. It should look like this! It won't make a difference in how it tastes even if you leave few small bits of unmashed tofu here and there, but if you want your pudding as smooth as it can be, I'd suggest giving it a very good mix.
5. Once the chocolatey tofu mixture has been blended into a smooth paste, start adding the soy milk (or regular dairy milk) bit by bit.
6. Dissolve the soaked gelatin by heating it up in the microwave a little. Adjust the heating times and wattage of your microwave so you don't end up overcooking it.
7. Pour in the gelatin mixture into the bowl of cocoa and tofu. Swiftly blend the gelatin in.
8. Pour the pudding mixture into small cups, and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. You're all done!
9. mmmm.... look how rich and creamy it is!
10. Swap the cocoa for 4 tablespoons of kinako (soybean flour) and you'll have a creamy kinako-flavored creme pudding. It's amazing with molasses...
